Sembene’s Legacy

The Tunnel will be screening at the Toronto Film Festival’s Bell Lightbox as part of a homage program to legendary African cinema pioneer Ousmane Sembene.

As we look back at the work of Ousmane Sembène, two programmes of contemporary short films offers a glimpse of a bold new generation of African filmmakers. From science fiction to surrealism, from morality tales to outright fantasy, these films reflect the legacy and influence of Ousmane Sembène while pushing the boundaries and challenging the definitions of African cinema.
